Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are in jail, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail amount will be set either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to promise to show up for court, and until then you must not leave the area.

Usually, an inmate in the James I Montgomery Correctional Center will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. You will have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you might have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by how serious your crime is. You will have to pay ten percent of the total that was set so you can get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, that person won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail will need to call the jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the James I Montgomery Correctional Center website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its easy. To start with, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail can’t take a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and in most cases with a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in these cases request to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in James I Montgomery Correctional Center is quite unpleasant, you will soon get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get an alarm for wake-up at 6:00AM, and then roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, participate in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. This could be working in the kitchen, laundry, or some sort of manufacturing job. While this may seem tedious, it may help you when you leave jail, as you are gaining experience in a certain field of work. Other inmates go to school, while some take part in mandated treatment programs. After lunch, there will be another roll call, then back to work. Your evening will be spent either in your cell or a common room. During this time dinner is served and you will be expected to take a shower. After another roll call, it’s lights out. Even though you will be confined to your cell, there may be enough light to read or write letters. Then again, most inmates welcome lights out, and try to get as much sleep as they can.

    Most people are frightened at the idea of jail because they don’t know what to expect. If you have spent any time in James I Montgomery Correctional Center, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    How To Send Money to an Inmate

    You will have your own ‘bank account’ while in jail. This money is used to purchase items from the Commissary. Family and friends can deposit money into this account for you, and any money you earn while in prison will also be deposited into your account. Outside money can be paid in to your account via a money order, cash or check. If someone sends a check or money order, make sure that they write your inmate ID on it. The maximum amount you are allowed in your account is $290 per month.

    Inmate Medications

    If you are on any type of prescription medication, you will be allowed to continue taking it while in jail. When you are first processed, you will be asked what medication you take. You will then be referred to the jail nurse or doctor who will be in charge of monitoring your health and prescribing your medication.

    Meals

    You will get three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. As expected, they are very basic, but healthy. A typical breakfast might be cereal, toast, coffee and fruit. Lunch might be spaghetti, salad, bread and milk. Dinner could be chicken casserole, rice, vegetables, dessert and milk. Contrary to popular belief, prison food has greatly improved over the years, and you might find that it’s not much different from what you would eat at home.

    Pods / The Yard

    The jail is designed in a ‘pod’ layout, with self contained housing arranged around an outdoor yard. Each pod has a central control station and a common room, and the inmates take turns in using the yard. The jail is designed this way to keep certain inmates together, and others away from the general population.

    Gangs

    As with life in general, gangs are a part of prison life. Obviously it is best to avoid becoming a part of this environment as it will only lead to trouble. When you first enter prison, you might find yourself being ‘primed’ to join a gang, or worse, you might get their attention in a negative way. The best thing to do is keep your head down and don’t get involved.
